Wu Yi Green Tea

When looking for the newest diet ideas you need look no further than Wu Yi Green tea. You will see it referenced repeatedly on line and in print. Despite the awesome claims of users, you may be wondering just what Wu Yi Green Tea actually is.

As you may have guessed from the name this is a Chinese tea. It is not actually a purely green tea. This tea is one of the most famous and most expensive of the Oolong teas. This tea comes in somewhere between black tea and green.

Not sweet like the black and less grassy tasting than the green, oolong tea is considered a blue-green tea. Brewed to be strong the bitterness actually leaves a sweet aftertaste.

This famous tea gets its name from the area in which it grows, the Wuyi Mountains of northern Fujian. It is processed like so:

• Wilted, preferably in the sunlight to remove part of the moisture.

• Cooled in a shady area.

• Leaves are gently tossed to bruise them, this aids in oxidation.

• Cooling and tossing are repeated several times.

• Stop the oxidation process using high heat. The leaves are often stir fried, of course in large-scale production there is a machine that does this job.

• Roll the leaves into strands or small balls

• Roast the leaves over low heat to remove any remaining moisture.

• Package and ship

In China tea is very important not only as a staple drink but in medicine and tradition. Chinese practitioners have used herbal teas for generations as a part of holistic healing. Tea is also important from a symbolic standpoint, it can be used as a sign of submission, apology or as a wedding toast. It is such an ingrained part of the culture that it is considered one of the seven daily necessities.

Knowing where Wu Yi tea comes from and its importance in the society from whence it came gives confidence that there is indeed something special about this tea. Chinese people have been developing and using tea for thousands of years in medicine and celebration, and this tea is one of only two that are considered “famous” Chinese teas.

The popularity of this tea in China and elsewhere stems from the excellent antioxidant properties and polyphenal, a metabolism booster. The metabolism booster is great for weight loss, and as a bonus, you will have clearer skin, stronger bones and a strengthened immune system. That is a lot of pluses in a cup of tea!
